Simple Acts of Kindness
Initially our main area of work was engaging with asylum seekers and helping them to establish a place of safety in the UK. This is still a key area of work for us in the West Midlands, and with its ever-growing super diversity we now welcome people from over sixty five countries to Brushstrokes.
Our work can be divided into two main areas:
Teaching of ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) along with associated skills such as numeracy, employment skills and citizenship
Reaching out into local communities by providing practical help to those in need including food, clothing and baby items.
